Itinerary:
An easy-moderate scramble. The peak is up the Banff-Jasper highway south of mosquito creek. 1150 meters of elevation gain and round trip distance of 12km. Starting from the parking pull off at Noseeum Creek. I don't think there's much of a trail, mostly walking over rough ground with minimal if any bushwacking. Bringing a ski pole or two recommended. The time on the trip not including driving time should be about 6-8 hours.
Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, sturdy boots, lunch, water, bear spray, headlamp, clothing layers for potential cool weather at elevation.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Ski poles, camera....

Carpool Departure Time:   06:30 AM
